    This article is presenting his debut as a corruption-related concepts such as those involving its definition, the corruption importance, the institutional causes of corruption in the public sector and the attempts to quantify it by Transparency Interna?ional, world leader in the fight against corruption. Looking the definition of corruption, this proves a quite difficult element due to the lack of an unanimous opinion about what this phenomenon means. Regarding the causes or the roots of corruption, the opinion according to that at the corruption basis exists the poverty is invalidated by the fact that the phenomenon is captured also inside the developed economies. In the end of the paper we have tried a presentation of corruption scores calculated by the international organism previous mentioned, with examples for the European Union emerging economies.
